Morgan Brown, one of Bang Camaro’s 10 to 20 lead singers, loves his videogames. But he loves his adoring female fans more. The heavy metal band that hails from Boston has a new record, Bang Camaro II, and a new deal with Electronic Arts‘ music label, Artwerk Music, which means even more exposure in videogames. The band’s new song, “Revolution,” is featured in The Sims 3.
While gamers might not be familiar with the band’s name, they’ve definitely heard their music in both Rock Band and Guitar Hero, as well as the PC game Titan Quest. And anyone who’s seen the band perform in a dingy rock club will remember them for both their music and their size. They take up the stage, literally, with 10 to 20 singers for every live show. Brown talks about the past, present and future of rock’s role in videogames, and why he won’t be playing Activision’s DJ Hero, in this exclusive interview.
